Real Estate in Porticello
Casa Quattordici formed part of the estate of the father of the current owner. Since he was the fourteenth child(!), this cute apartment on the 1st floor in the fishing village of Porticello was named after him. It is a completely renovated, split level studio, with the kitchen and bathroom in the lower area and the bedroom in the upper area. The two are connected by a neat and space-saving spiral staircase. A very affordable investment, this would make an ideal first foray into Sicilian real estate.
This property is sold fully furnished, from large appliances to toothpicks
The balcony is big enough for two to sit and, if you wish, enjoy a drink or even a meal overlooking the small, picture-postcard piazza in this lovely fishing village.
Inside, Casa Quattordici is fitted with two air conditioning units, each with both heating and cooling functions, in the lower living area and in the upper sleeping area respectively. Wifi and satellite TV are provided.
It is only a few feet to the marina and several restaurants. A small sandy beach is about 400m away. The neighborhood is lively, local and welcoming.
The train station is less than 1.5km away; the beach half that. Santa Flavia is a small, traditional town with a picturesque fishing port. Sitting just outside of Sicily’s capital of Palermo, the local rail will bring you to the city center in fifteen minutes but you feel worlds removed from the noise and urban intensity.
This property is sold absolutely turnkey – buy and move in immediately! If you are buying to let or rent this is an absolute dream, with no work at all required. The apartment would be ideal for two people to live, but for holiday letting the sofa bed in the lower area can comfortably accommodate double the sleeping capacity. If you are investing in a vacation property.
